Annabel Yates for Studley
Climate action, Integrity & Representation
Currently, I am studying a Bachelor of Science at The University of Melbourne. I have lived in Boroondara since 2012. I also worked part-time at a restaurant on High Street, Kew and played AFL for Kew Comets for seven seasons. Recently, I joined Old Xaverians FC.
I finished school in 2018 where I was captain of AFL, cross country and a prefect. In 2019 I worked as a ski instructor in France and Japan, travelling solo in between.
I want to create a better future for my generation. I believe that the best way to make change is to participate in the decisions that shape our society. In running for council I hope to encourage other young people to take responsibility for their future.
As the councillor for Studley Ward I will...
Create an opportunity to represent 40% of people in Boroondara under the age of thirty who have no current representation in council.
Listen to the people of Studley to understand matters that are important.
Ensure authenticity and transparency within council.
Matters that are important to Studley Ward...
Helping our local businesses recover from COVID lockdowns.
Encouraging active transport within our community through developing bike paths and footpaths.
Make Kew library into a co-working space to support students studying online and residents working from home.
Stop rate increases by eliminating wasteful spending.
Expand green waste disposal to local businesses.
